A taster menu of corporate events

Find Inspiration

When you’re planning any kind of corporate event, a blank sheet of paper can be a daunting starting point. So many possibilities, and so many questions.
What’s the point of your event? What’s the budget? The ideal location?

In truth, we’ve got access to so many possibilities that we can help to arrange anything – but we also know that sometimes this isn’t helpful! Sometimes, being overwhelmed with options makes it harder to make a plan.

So here, for the benefit of managers, HR people, and learning and development pros everywhere, is a little tasting menu from Marmalade MTB.

What could your corporate event – a single day or an overnighter – look like?

The Wilderness Retreat

Escape the office to spend time among nature, just a short way from Gatwick Airport:
